Title I, School Improvement Grants
The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) includes a $3 billion appropriation for Title I School Improvement grants which will be made available to states beginning in fall 2009.
Virginia expects to receive $47.9 million of this appropriation and will award sub-grants to school divisions, giving priority to divisions with the lowest-achieving schools that demonstrate:
- The greatest need for such funds; and
- Strongest commitment to ensuring that such funds are used to provide adequate resources to enable the lowest-achieving schools to meet the goals under school and division improvement, corrective action and restructuring plans.
Additional information on Title I School Improvement grants will be posted when provided by USED.
